105 Years of Caister Holiday Park Proves the Success of UK Caravan Holidays

HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 1, 2012) - When John Fletcher Dodd first opened up his back garden to three bell tents in 1906, he could not have believed for one second that he was actually sowing the seeds for an experience which would become ingrained in the fabric of British social history.

However, Fletcher Dodd's generous offer of hospitality at his home in Caister, near Great Yarmouth in Norfolk, was destined to kick-start the tradition of British people from all walks of life being able to afford to take a seaside break away from the rigours of everyday life.

Fast forward 105 years and Caister Holiday Park is still welcoming holidaymakers (and indeed holiday home owners) to its famous site, albeit in rather larger numbers and far more luxuriant surroundings than those first three families experienced all those years ago.

The modern day Caister complex is owned by British seaside holiday experts Haven - one of 36 parks operated by the popular brand with over 40 years' experience in the holiday market, at coastal locations stretching from Scotland to the South West.

Reasons as to why holiday parks such as Caister have survived and indeed flourished for more than a century are not hard to fathom. As anyone who has previously visited any Haven Park will undoubtedly already be aware, the sheer eclectic mix of fun, entertainment, relaxation and lifestyle on offer ensures that there is something for everyone to enjoy, be they young couples, families or retirees. The number of caravan sales on Haven Parks continues to rise despite the economic climate, proving that UK caravan holidays are a favourite with all kinds of people.

The static caravan parks offer a variety of attractions including heated indoor and outdoor pools, all weather sports courts, golf courses, tennis courts, fishing and even horse-riding and Spa facilities. On top of that there's a full programme of entertainment in place for children and adults seven days a week, while bracing walks and stunning views can also be enjoyed at a visitor's leisure. All of that plus a safe and secure environment where children can enjoy more freedom and fresh air, no wonder holidays parks continue to be so popular.
